Hondaman traps is what reflects a cars proper power not ETs.. the car is no more than 450hp and traps around 130mph.. his ETs are poor simply due to the wrong ratio within the vw box and very slow syn in the box (which he hopes hes improved this year), also the ratio in box in a couple gears has changed.. Basicly if you see it run the car drops huge rpm on shifts/drops spool etc and reflects to the poor ET.. ok it isnt poor as such but you get what im saying..

It use to run volvo crank as said, and with the lower piston height around 8:1 comp, also with the lower torq to keep things safe, the stock JC5 box did hold out well and never failed as such just got noiser and is a weak spot within his build so it had to go..

This year its back on a 172 crank but running a spacer plate and im sure it will be in the 10s soon if the box ratio works out well.. be good to see some torq curves etc to answer that best...

Out of interest did he build it to set records on the strip or to annihilate people on the road - or a bit of both? I think Scoff should open an account on here if he hasn't already, be interesting to hear what the man himself has to say on it.
